WATCH: Brook Lopez firing off flat-footed threes in Nets practice

Yup, that’s Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez hanging out during Nets practice, firing off three-pointers while barely leaving the ground. He hit two of three, which is totally a big enough sample size, and I fully expect to see him shooting threes at a Chris Bosh-esque rate next season.

The bigger point: Lopez is getting enough lift off his feet to shoot three-pointers without a walking boot. After fracturing a bone in his right foot to end his season in December and getting additional surgery on his left ankle in March, that’s a good sign for his future.
